Transportation has always been a important and one of the fundamental aspect of human development. The connectivity and the time saved due to transportation can never be replaced. But with the increase in pollution and decrease in the fossil fuels has lead the researchers to find a more renewable and environment friendly fuel that could be used to power vehicles. To this frontier California-based car company, Faraday Future, just unveiled a new, fully electric concept car that can boasts 1,000 horsepower, top speeds of over 200 mph (321km) and can go from 0-60 miles (94.5 km) in under 3 seconds. WOW that’s fast…
This week at CES in Las Vegas the company announced that it could see “limited production” in the future. Known as the FFZERO1, the prototype contains a lot of strange attributes like a sleek, glass roof, an interior based on NASA’s anti-gravity research, and a helmet that can feed a constant supply of water and oxygen to the driver.
Richard Kim, head of design at Faraday Future, told the press:
“The FFZERO1 Concept is an amplified version of the design and engineering philosophies informing FF’s forthcoming production vehicles, This project liberated our designers and inspired new approaches for vehicle forms, proportions, and packaging that we can apply to our upcoming production models.”
When it comes to the seating, Faraday says it was “inspired by NASA zero gravity design” to achieve reduced driver fatigue and a sense of weightlessness by maximizing comfort and circulation. With room only for the driver, this “one-seater hypercar” is basically something that looks like the Bat mobile and runs like a Ferrari.
The whole car is fully Internet-connected, which means you can connect your smartphone onto the steering wheel and use it like a digital copilot, allowing you to access performance data and modify power output in real time. A gadget attached to the dash is placed to monitor the driver’s bio metrics just to be sure everything’s in check.
While that all sounds pretty awesome, the coolest part of this car is it’s power source. Referred to as Variable Platform Architecture (VPA), Tamara Warren over at The Verge describes it as an “adaptable strings of batteries, in which rows of batteries could be removed or added”. No official confirmation has been made yet on how long a single charge would last, but the company says that it’s working with the biggest and best battery cell suppliers in the world to develop new iterations for future commercial vehicles.
According to Extreme Tech:
“While you’re likely never ever going to drive one of these things for real , you’ll soon be able to download an app that lets you configure the car in 3D, which is better than nothing, right?”
